No it didnt come on floppies but you could make boot up floppies.

How to obtain Windows XP Setup boot disks

Quote:
This program creates the Setup boot disks for Microsoft Windows XP. To create these disks, you need to provide 6 blank, formatted, high-density disks.
That is where i got the whole 6 floppies thing. It was so you could run the setup from the CD by the means of floppy on older systems. I remember having to do this with some old Windows 98 Machines that couldnt boot from CD drives.

Vista SP1 Final is not done yet.

There is Vista SP1 Refresh 2 that doesn't have the watermark or timebomb. But there is no final that has even been released yet let alone leaked.
